Presentation 5

Active learning typically involves engaging students in a variety of interactive and/or hands-on activities. An instructor may have a sense of whether activities and assignments were effective but may also want to examine the perspective of students. The instructor may want to know whether students feel they have learned and whether they found the experience to be engaging. This presentation will describe an efficient and effective technique for assessing student perceptions of learning and enjoyment of assignments and activities in diverse classrooms. As an end-of-course evaluation, this assessment allows students to critically evaluate their experience in the course and to (perhaps) recognize when less enjoyable assignments may nevertheless enhance their learning. Examples from humanities, physics, and psychology classes will be included.
